BJP leader Shatrughan Sinha: Being a loyalist and a disciplined party soldier, I certainly appreciate and abide by the #BJP party parliamentary board’s decision of finally nominating Mr. Ram Nath Kovind, #RamNathKovind, Hon. Governor of Bihar, as the NDA presidential candidate… Highly appreciate this decision and congratulate the senior, learned, seasoned politician & perfect gentleman Mr. #RamNathKovind .. However we have certain reservations about the decision, however right & timely it may be. I wish the matter was dealt with or handled in a more mature & transparent manner. We could have nipped the bud right in the beginning in an open & shut, transparent manner without going into the “Ringa Ringa Roses” of so called discussions & consultations with one and all parties.. Nonetheless, long live our friend, philosopher, guide, guru & ultimate leader Honourable Mr. L.K.Advani. Long live #BJP Jai Hind.
CPI National Secretary D. Raja joined Yechury in congratulating the two and said Kovind should now act as a custodian of the Constitution. He observed the race to Raisina Hill was a “very dignified one”, notwithstanding the different political and ideological lines followed by the NDA and the opposition.
CPM general secretary Sitaram Yechury said on Twitter that the Opposition’s fight for a “plural and equitable” India will continue. “Congratulations to Shri Ram Nath Kovind. Our fight for a plural, harmonious, equitable and just India continues. “Congratulations to Smt Meira Kumar for a spirited fight. @meira_kumar,” he said on the micro-blogging site.
